Verder has just been announced as winner of the Outstanding New Product/Service category at the 2022 Global Business Excellence Awards.
Verder Liquids manufactures pumps, mixers and systems which are distributed through 27 Verder offices, with a worldwide network of local distribution. The Verder Group is a family-owned business formed over 60 years ago in the Netherlands and now employs over 1850 people. The UK division, Verder Ltd, is the home of manufacturing for the much-loved Verderflex range of pumps, including the Dura 65 model (D65).
The Global Business Excellence Awards pride themselves on having a large panel of independent expert judges who select winners according to strict criteria for each category and sector, focusing on financial results, innovation, customer, employee, investor, and community benefits.
Commenting on Verder Group, the winner in the Outstanding New Product/Service category, the chairman of the judges said: “Congratulations to Netherlands-based Verder Group for inventing the Verderflex Dura 65 (D65) peristaltic pump that is the first real development in hose pump technology since the arrival of the high-pressure hose. The D65 pump offers high performance and takes up 70% less space because of its vertical motor. Hose changes are fast and easy with the unique connection system. Verder has come up with an easy-to-use and control, robust pump that can be used in a wide range of industries for heavy duty operations.”
Upon receiving the Award, Colin Heathfield, Product Manager for Verderflex Peristaltic Pumps said “It is a real pleasure to win this award, this is a pump which although using existing technology has listened to the customer for feedback on what would make their life in terms of pump operation better. I would like to thank and offer praise to our team for coming together with this concept, maximising the flow rate per frame size. From the access hatch to clean the track, through to the lifting eye on the front plate to make the unit safer to work on, we have tried to address the small points that make a difference whilst still trying to maintain a balance between product specification and value for money. Its success as a good value pump for the customer can be reinforced by the number of units going through our system.”
